Real Wedding // Jessica & Elliot’s Victoria’s wedding

Jessica & Elliot’s wedding at Victoria’s Ewingsdale was a beautiful intimate gathering, combining their Australian and English families together for the first time ever in celebration of their marriage. The theme of the day was a lovely balance between classical and contemporary, complementing the venue and expressing the couples’ love for adding a modern edge to antique finds. Witness how Van Middleton captures every moment of this picturesque autumn day.

Tell us your story, how did you both meet? 

After Elliot arrived to Australia as a backpacker in 2012 and Jess returned to Mount Isa from university, their paths crossed at the local community “The Buffs Club” in 2014. Elliot had been sponsored to be Duty Manager of the club, and Jess was working as the Events Coordinator. As a result, they became quite close very quickly, working together on numerous occasions and having a similar circle of friends. Needless to say the relationship blossomed to what it is today.

How did the proposal happen? 

I had actually arranged a trip to Cairns for Elliot’s birthday which included a hot air balloon ride above the Atherton Tablelands. While in the air overlooking the beautiful scenery, Elliot asked me to stand in the corner so he could take a picture, knowing full well I would never say no to a photo opportunity. As I positioned myself, Elliot carefully took the ring out of his pocket and then tapped me on the shoulder, to which all the fellow passengers started cheering and taking photos of their own.

What were the reasons for choosing Victoria’s as the venue for your special day? 
We both have a certain style which we believe suited Victoria’s perfectly. It had a European feel to it and the perfect balance of contemporary and classical. It also had the perfect setting in which a bride and groom can get ready at the venue without being too far apart (a photographer’s dream apparently). There were beautiful views from the lawn and the size was perfect for the intimate wedding we had dreamed of. All our guests commented on how perfect Victoria’s was and we couldn’t agree more!

What style were you striving for with your table settings, florals and reception? Was there a certain look or vibe that you wanted to create? 
We were definitely looking for that vintage theme with a modern edge, not wanting to be uber vintage or uber modern and I think the balance worked perfectly. We love earthy tones so brought that out in our styling with burgundy, green and cream hues. Wanting to keep in theme with the contemporary/classic feel of the wedding, we were also able to showcase our passion for antiques and anything vintage. Victoria’s gave us the setting in which to incorporate this into our wedding with great ease.
 
Were there any vendors that you particularly loved working with and why? 

I think given the intimacy of the wedding, it was very important to have a top quality celebrant, and we got that with Andy from AM Weddings. He was also one part of Jake and Andy (our entertainment), who we got on with very well. In all honesty, every one of our vendors were incredible and without them we wouldn’t of had the wedding of our dreams.

What were your favourite parts of the planning process with Byron Bay Weddings?

My favourite part of the planning process was brainstorming with our wedding planner about the styling and theme for the day. It was exciting to see our vision come to life. I also loved choosing the food for the menu and the cocktails that would be served!

Overall, what was your most favourite part of your wedding day and why? 

Overall, it would have to be seeing both sets of friends & families, English and Australian mingling as one. It was a surreal moment and one we will cherish forever.
